I'm a mother of 3. I have a 2-story house, 4 bedroom and 3 full bath of which two of these bathrooms are "his" & "hers". The bedrooms are bigger than regular-sized rooms and the closet are wardrobe mirrors. The Homestay Room is at the 2nd floor of my house. I have a hair dryer & flat iron that guest can use upon request. I provide toiletries. My house has a small backyard. I don't have pets but i live at the foot of the hill and there are lots of different animals appearing at the back of my property from time to time . My house is close to elementary, middle, high school like Bishop Alemany, 10 minutes drive; college which is the California State University of Northridge (CSUN), 12 minutes drive. It is also close to churches, post office, malls, theater, bus stops, parks, fast food restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, churches and highways. We are about 30 minutes drive from downtown L.A. My house is literally 15 minutes away from Universal Studios Hollywood and 20 minutes to Magic Mountain. Hollywood Walk of Fame is about 18-20 miles away. We're very close to Children's Museum of L.A. There's also a public library with a big park and swimming pool and big fish pond owned by the city of L.A. which is open to the public. There's horseback riding and a mini zoo close by as my house is animal-zoned area and there's an open firing range. My house is also close to Police station. I speak English, Tagalog and "poquito" Espanol and so with my son. We love to dine outside, travel, horse back riding, yoga and exercise. My son who lives with me is a licensed auto broker so if you need to lease/buy a car, my son will be glad to help you. I know most of my neighbors in my community because I have lived here for over 11 years. Check-in is 1 pm, check-out is 12 noon.

    Thank you for Zenaida.
    I did a short stay of three days. On the first day, my host welcomed me even when my arrival was late at night. The room I used was a very comfortable room with a large bed, closet, work desk and air conditioning. I'm not very good at English, but my host was kind enough to speak English slowly. I also went shopping with my host and her son, and went out for a day and night with my host son and his friends. The host's son was very kind, friendly.
    The experience of playing in Santa Monica with my host son and friends at night will be a memory of me for the rest of my life. The host was also very worried about my future trip. The host, her son, and his friends were all very kind people. The homestay's house is clean and very spacious. I think it won't be difficult to stay for a long time, and you can easily communicate with the host and their son and meet various people.
    The last night served a pizza to the host. I am very happy to meet my host, my son and friends in my first time in America.
    If you are considering a homestay in Los Angeles, I highly recommend it.
